Designed by Austin-Smith:Lord, Peoples History Museum is located in Manchester, United Kingdom. Based in Manchester, The Peoples History Museum focuses upon an internationally important collection, which includes the National Archive of the Labour Party, collections relating to the TUC, The UK Communist Party, Women’s Suffrage and the Co-op Movement amongst others. The Museum is unequaled in its collection of Trade Union banners from around the world, supported by world leading in house textile conservation expertise.
The additional space will be made available through the creation of a new 4 storey extension, providing a new public entrance, galleries, conservation studio, archive and public reading room. The key to the design of the extension is the ability to deliver a building that contains the collections within an appropriate environment, one which ensures a comfortable visitor experience and is both enjoyable and memorable; one which provides a healthy working situation for staff and visitor.
